The biggest Latin band in Austin, Grupo Fantasma, is back in town after a brief stint on the road supporting the relase of their latest album El Existential. Not only is it their first show in Austin proper in months, but it is their only Austin show for while before hitting the road again next week to tour out of state. If you like salsa, funk, cumbia or just a good time, you will want to be at Mohawk Friday night.
Opening for Grupo Fantasma is the Ausitn-based Brazilian soul group Os Alquimistas. We have seen Os Alquimistas at Xemumba Fest in 2009 as well as a few World Music Nights at Momo’s. Fans of funky beats, samba and South American rhythms that make you feel good, show up early Friday.
Mohawk is located at 912 Red River between 9th and 10th Streets. Doors open at 9 p.m. All ages welcome. Tickets at the door will be $17. Advance tickets for this show are available at Front Gate Tickets here.
